I try to always use a different version than it was created in. I like a challenge.

Christ. Is there anything they don't charge for nowadays? I almost expect to get a bill for individual human oxygen consumption at the end of the month.


    N.Z. is in trouble too. They need the $$s.  Rorohiko is Maori for something like "thunder bolts coming out of long white cloud over mountainous coast" I made that up; a bit. You get the gist.
